After a continental breakfast, proceed on a guided city tour of Vienna. We drive on the Ring Boulevard and see the State Opera House, the Parliament, the City Hall and the Burgtheater. We also make a photostop at the Hofburg-former winter residence of the Habsburg family and the Belvedere Palace-former summer residence of Prince Eugene. Also see the Hundertwasserhaus, an apartment house designed by Austrian artist FriedensreichHundertwasser. It features undulating floors (“an uneven floor is a melody to the feet”), a roof covered with earth and grass, and large trees growing from inside the rooms, with limbs extending from windows. Later, we visit the Schonbrunn Palace (the former summer residence of the Habsburg family). Schönbrunn Palace was not only an imperial residence and the setting for countless festivities, but also a place where famous artists and craftsmen from many different epochs created interiors of great beauty. All the rooms in the palace have their own stories to tell, stories on the margins of great historical events which are indicative of the lifestyle, atmosphere and world view of the imperial era.

After a continental breakfast, we check-out of our hotel and proceed to Krakow in Poland. It is a scenic drive taking you right through the mountainous and densely wooded Slovakia, where brown bears still roam free. On arrival, we proceed to Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the subterranean world of labyrinthine passages, giant caverns, underground lakes and chapels with sculptures in the crystalline salt and rich ornamentation carved in the salt rock.

After a continental breakfast, we proceed on a guided city tour of Krakow. See the Florian’s Gate and Wawel Castle. Visit the Main Square (RynekGlówny) the natural centre of Krakow with its centrally located Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) which has survived to this day. Other buildings standing to this day in the heart of the Main Market Square include the solitary tower - a remnant of the Town Hall demolished in the 19th century. Later, in the afternoon, we visit Auschwitz Concentration Camp - a symbol of the Holocaust and a grim reminder of what cruelty Man is capable of. Jews were sent there from all over Europe to undergo selection and to be systematically murdered in gas chambers. We say and write “Auschwitz,” but we actually mean a torture center, a terror that we cannot possibly conceive, the essence of evil and horror. Auschwitz was surrounded by high electric barbed wire fences, which were guarded by SS soldiers armed with machine guns and rifles. Overnight at your hotel in Krakow

Later, proceed to Lednice - ‘Garden of Europe’ which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visit the Lednice castle which sits in the largest park in the country that covers 200 square kilometers. The Magnificent Castle began its life as a Renaissance villa; in the 17th century it became a summer residence of the ruling Princes of Liechtenstein. The estate house which was designed and furbished by well-known baroque architects proclaimed rural luxury on the grandest scale. In 1846-58 it was extensively rebuilt in a Neo-Gothic style.

After a continental breakfast, we check-out and drive to Prague - capital city of Czech Republic. On arrival, we proceed on a guided city tour of Prague. We start our tour from the 1000-year-old Hradcany Castle, the former residence of the Bohemian kings and St.Vitus Cathedral. Walk down from the Palace to Charles Bridge, founded in 1357 by Charles IV. Both ends of the bridge are fortified by towers (the Lesser Town Bridge Towers and the Old Town Bridge Tower). We also visit the Old Town Square with its Town Hall and Astronomical Clock. The Astronomical Clock is one of the outstanding sights of Prague. The dial is poised with three main components: the astronomical dial that displays various astronomical details as well as representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky; “The Walk of the Apostles”, showcases the movement of the figures of Twelve Apostles passing along the two windows in every hour of daylight; and a calendar dial that rotates and gives the description of each and every day of the year with an indication of the current date at the top, the medallions with zodiac signs describing every month.

After a continental breakfast, we check-out of our hotel and drive to Dresden. On arrival, proceed on a guided city tour and see the Zwinger, the Semper Opera House - the only theater in Germany that bears the name of its architect, which was completely destroyed in 1945 and reopened in 1985 after extensive reconstruction. We also see the Frauenkirche, erected between 1726 and 1743, following the designs of George Bähr. Its characteristic dome, called the “stone bell” owing to its shape, collapsed on February 15th, 1945 under the rain of bombs. Visit the Altmarkt Square, the large rectangular marketplace which has been the heart of the town since Dresden’s foundation and was mentioned for the first time in a document in 1370. During the bombing raids of February 1945 the historical Altmarkt square was completely destroyed. Reconstruction on a changed ground plan began in 1953. The rebuilding of residential and business premises referred to historical elements - continuous bay-windows, sectionalised plaster-sandstone facades, dormer windows, saddleback roofs and adornment. These buildings are today classified as a historical monument. Later we proceed to Berlin - Capital city of Germany. Overnight at your hotel in Berlin
After a continental breakfast, we proceed on a guided city tour of Potsdam. The past 300 years have seen the transformation of Potsdam from a garrison town to one of Europe’s most imposing royal capitals. Potsdam’s architectural masterpieces, the 17 palaces that are surrounded by an abundance of landscape gardens lining the banks of the beautiful Havel waterscape have considerably determined Potsdam’s World Cultural Heritage status. We then return to Berlin and proceed on a guided city tour of Berlin. See the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate - located in no-man’s land between East and West Germany, the restored Reichstag - the German Parliament Building and the 210 foot Victory Column in the vast Tiergarten Park.
